Currently, John is working on his book, 100 Making a Dif ference — slated for release Februar y 2018. "100 Making a Dif ference is a collection of passionate human beings who are dedicated to improving the lives of others through their tireless charitable work. I've shot some really amazing people for it, like Elton John, Maria Shriver, Malala Yosafzai, and representatives from organizations such as TOMS Shoes, Green Peace, Autism Speaks, and Charit y Water." Full of beautiful black and white photographs and inspiring stories, this book is a definite must-have. He is also working on another book, a collection of his work from the last t went y years. "Hoping to have it out mid-2018, but I am holding out on its release until I shoot Madonna!" A savvy entrepreneur, John's brilliance and creativit y transcends the world of photography. He has his own fragrance named, John Russo, and has developed over 40 colors of nail lacquer and 15 lipstick colors. "It's a passion project of mine.

So, if you could play against anyone, who would it be? "I would play my girl Serena Williams, but only when she's 9 months pregnant, so I could maybe ace her." Seriously, who doesn't John know?
